Paradise accused of tampering with gas metres
The Straits Times Monday, Jan 20, 2014
 
SINGAPORE - It grew from humble beginnings as a zi char stall in an industrial estate, to an award-winning restaurant chain with footprints in Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, China and Indonesia.
 
But popular restaurant group Paradise is in the soup, having been charged with tampering with the gas meters at 24 of its outlets.
 
No plea was taken yesterday from Ms Ng Siew Eng, who is representing the group, known for both fine-dining and casual Chinese eateries. The case will be mentioned again on Feb 28.
 
The chain was founded by restaurateur Eldwin Chua, 36, who went from running a zi char stall in Defu Lane to operating 34 restaurants under brands such as Seafood Paradise, Paradise Inn and Paradise Pavilion.
 
For his achievements, he was voted Entrepreneur of the Year in 2011, while his Paradise group was the overall winner in the Promising Brands category at the Singapore Prestige Brand Awards.
 
Court papers showed the alleged offences involved 24 restaurants and occurred between March and May 2012.
 
Seals meant to secure the bypass valve of gas meters were found missing. In some instances, the position of the valve was moved from "closed" to "open", allowing gas to flow without registering on the meters.
 
Eight of the restaurants also face a charge each of having dishonestly used gas which had been diverted past the meter, and was not reflected in the monthly bill issued by City Gas. There was no mention of any loss suffered by the gas supplier.
 
Of the 24 restaurants, 13 were Paradise Inn eateries, four came under Kung Fu Paradise, two were Seafood Paradise outlets, and one each was from Paradise Group Holdings, Paradise Dynasty, Paradise Pavilion, Taste Paradise and Canton Paradise.
 
They include outlets in Changi Airport, Suntec, Marina Boulevard, Orchard Road, East Coast Road and Jurong East Central.
 
The Paradise Inn outlet in Terminal 1 of Changi Airport faces two charges of tampering with its gas meter on April 5, 2012 and May 21, 2012. The penalty for altering and tampering with a gas meter is a fine of up to $10,000 and a jail term of up to a year. Dishonest use of gas could be punished with a fine of up to $50,000 and up to five years in jail.
 
The restaurants are represented by Mr Patrick Ong of law firm David Ong & Company while Mr Amarjit Singh and Mr Eric Tin of Donaldson & Burkinshaw are prosecuting on behalf of The Energy Market Authority, the regulator of the gas industry.

for sure CityGas will go into bottom of this

they sure have a system wide analysing program knowing which area is losing money, end of the month, once ppl do balancing, one can easily spot the losses

if you say one outlet cheat then maybe the manager wants to improve the bottom line, but if all the outlets cheat? will the CEO not know about this?  -_-

Do they save on the cooking oil too by using the 地沟油(recycled oil)? Or passing off pork as beef etc?

Time to avoid this chain.

I don't understand this kind of cheating - at the end of the day, how much can save on gas as a proportion of total operating costs? 

 

Seems rather foolish to me..

 

and remember, the fine will be "per instance" - so it might get very expensive very fast (remember the guy that got into trouble for 20+ red plate cheating instances)

quite a small sum it seems..assuming: 24 restaurants x $10k/month x 12 months = $2.88m saved per annum
